Eagle Award Recipient - Sgt. William Revelle
Jim Bickford and Brad Pierce presented the award to Sgt. Revelle.  Below is a description of Sgt. Revelle's actions as a police officer:

Sgt. Bill Revelle has been with the Aurora Police Department since 1994. He joined our traffic unit as the MET Sergeant in 2010. While in traffic he has organized many Fallen Officer Processions, far too many to count. Sgt Revelle has not only planned these events for the Aurora Police Department, but he has also been called upon to be an instrumental planning member for processions metro wide. Sgt. Revelle puts several hours into making sure every detail is thought of and executed. He trains for many hours with all agencies to make sure each member knows every detail of the procession from roads, turns and hand signals so that they are flawless for the families.


As if this isn’t enough, Sergeant Revelle has also put together many traffic details for visits from the President and Vice President of the United States throughout his tenure in this assignment.  Truth be told, there have been several political figures that have benefited from Sgt Revelle’s expertise when they have come through Aurora. The planning and execution of these events are not easy as there are many details to consider when working with the Secret Service and other federal agencies.

Sgt. Revelle has always put maximum effort into his various assignments at APD, from patrolman, to DART, to Traffic, and now in his new assignment in the Narcotics unit. He is a Sergeant that works in the field with his team running radar, getting people from their vehicles in snow storms, and helping during protests.

The men and women of the APD look up to him, knowing that his heart is with them and that their safety, along with the safety of the public, is a high priority to him.


Congratulations Sgt. Revelle on this award.  

Curt Harris, District Governor 5450 - 2020 Message
District Governor Curt Harris was our speaker this week.  He made a few announcements prior to starting his presentation.  He announced that AG Kay Davis' term would be ending and that our very own Regina Edmondson would be taking her place.  Congratulations Regina!!  Also, he presented a Club Citation to Past President Jim Bickford and current President Regina.  Congrats to leadership and membership for your efforts in growing our club. 
Curt began his presentation talking about his history with their club in Evergreen and his expeditions to Kilimanjaro to support the building of hospitals.  These activities helped build him toward a clear understanding of Rotary, his fellow Rotarians, and the impact a group of people can have on a community from local, national, an international perspective.   He spoke of several programs that he has heard and seen impacts, but spent a bit more time on RYLA(Rotary Youth Leadership Awards).   Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people ages 13–30 are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club's district committee. Participants are chosen for their leadership potential. Rotary Clubs and the Rotary District cover all expenses for the participants. The format of the event vary from district to district, but commonly take the form of a seminar, camp, or workshop to discuss leadership skills and to learn those skills through practice. Rotary clubs and districts select participants and facilitate the event's curriculum.

RYLA aims to:[1]

  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth;
  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders;
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth;
  • Recognise publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities.

Every RYLA program covers the following core topics:[1]

  • Fundamentals of leadership
  • Ethics of positive leadership
  • Importance of communication skills in effective leadership
  • Problem-solving and conflict management
  • Rotary's purpose and service to the community
  • Building self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Elements of community and global citizenship

In 5450 about 675 High School/Middle School/Disabled students were supported.  

He spent the remainder of his time discussing District Grants and upcoming meetings.  Please see link below for a short video from Curt thanking people for their support and these meetings.  This will also provide you with 5450 District Information if you are not already receiving those emails.

Thanks Curt for your time and your presentation.

Next meeting on 1/15/2020.
